Allison Transmission, VanDyne SuperTurbo to co-develop vehicle demonstrator
VanDyne SuperTurbo and Allison Transmission have announced a collaboration to co-develop a vehicle demonstrator. The companies plan to leverage the unique performance benefits of VanDyne's mechanically driven turbocharger in combination with Allison's TC10 transmission in a Class 8 tractor. Through the deployment of advanced control techniques, the two technologies will maximize the benefits of engine downspeeding, efficient supercharging and turbo compounding. The primary objective of the collaboration is to demonstrate how these two products, when paired with an intelligently controlled vehicle, can reduce carbon dioxide emissions and improve fuel efficiency without sacrificing performance.
